Deciding what music to take away with me on a week alone is the hardest decision I've faced in a long time. First world problems suck. Going for a week on a deserted coastal town where my grandmother grew up. Looking for recs! Sputnik, you have six hours.
List is recentish digs.
A Damaged Machine
Seriously, this rules. Huge shout out to Puzzles. Will be reviewing this when I get back. Chino Moreno had sex with Trent Reznor to create Puzzles.
Great local band. Community radio station whores these guys endlessly. See why now.
Was expecting more from Caxide, but nice mood music.
|4|| ||La Dispute|
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River
How have I not heard this before? Eagerly awaiting their next.
|5||Faith No More|
Underrated as fuck. Their best behind Angel Dust IMO.
|6||The Black Angels|
Nice music for a drive. Not too heavy.
Holy shit this is awesome.
Return of the Drifter
High plains drifter, smash ya transistor. Great underground rap from the UK.
Also another great listen.
How had I not heard this before? 
|11||The Fall of Troy|
Needs more delay pedal. How post-hardcore should be done.
Being a bassist, this album makes me feel sexually inadequate.
The Illusion of Democracy
Tosin and Brewer need to do another album together.
|14||Bliss N Eso|
Another great local band. Love these guys.
Nice, laidback. Was waiting for more Team Sleep. This'll do, sonny.
Parting The Sea Between Brightness and Me
Not as good as ...To The Beat, but still. Missed these guys a few weeks ago. Not sure if upset.
A Healthy Distrust
Great lyricism. Intelligent; on par with Aesop and Eyedea. Production is slick too.
You Are There
Awesome album. Mono are out here next month, along with about six other bands I want to see. Doubt I'll get the chance. Sadgasm.
|19||All Shall Perish|
This Is Where It Ends
Great deathcore for a deathcore mood. Not as good as the past two albums though.
AOTY so far.
The Some of All Things
Eyedea goes grunge. Sexy!
|22||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
Bought this on vinyl, tweeted about it, Puciato thanked me personally. Loving this album. Probably seeing them when they're out here in January.
Awesome band. They're quite obscure these days, unfortunately. I know a guy who has a signed letter and photograph from these guys from the 80s.
|24||Circle Takes The Square|
As The Roots Undo
Took me a while to get into, loving it now.
More great local-ish music. Loving it. Self-explanatory.
|Needs some recs! Sputnik has six hours.|
|I fucking love that song!|
|A complement from silentpotato!? Shit, I must be doing good. Yeah, I noticed we tend to have fairly similar taste when it comes to eclectic music. If there's one album I'd reccomend off that list, it's Birthday. Seriously. It's so good. I'll try to get to a few of your recs soon! Jodis has been on my list for a while, other than that, they're all names I've heard a few times but never looked into, so I'll definitely be having fun with them.|
@clercqie-I love it too! I thought the title was appropriate.m
|I actually payed for it myself; I'd been given an iTunes gift card for my birthday (I do not comprehend), and I like the other stuff the guys in the band have produced (It's pretty much all of Carbon Carousel, and half of Face Candy), but it sounds like nothing either of those bands have produced. Dreamy, noisy, blissed out avant-prog is really the best way to describe it.|
|Double post alert. But yeah, it's an amazing album, and it's also the last recorded work of Eyedea (played guitar for Guitar Party), whom I love, so either way, it's amazing. Plus, I like supporting underground music, even if they get next to nothing from Apple.|
As for your recs; I'm in love with Chelsea Wolfe and Ulrich, and I already loved Xavier. You sir have extraordinary taste in music.
|Love the description for 1 and 22. Both brilliant listens as well.|
|Woah someone knows about Bliss N Eso? |
|very diverse list|
Rosetta - ADOM
Year Of No Light - Ausserwelt (if you get nothing else, get this)
Daylight Dies - Dismantling Devotion
Minus The Bear - Highly Refined Pirates
|Surprised to see 19 on here.|
|Can't really rec you anything, but best of luck just the same it sounds like a serious alone time. |
